Feed the Children and New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton are teaming up to help 2,800 families affected by the BP oil spill.

Today Payton and some of his fellow Saints coaches, as well as country music artist Sammy Kershaw, are scheduled to help distribute food and personal items to families that have seen their incomes reduced by the oil spill.

Each family will get a 25-pound box of food and 10 pounds of personal care items.

Feed the Children says the food will help feed a family for up to a week.
